President Duterte wants part of Fuga Island as Philippine Navy detachment

 


President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has ordered the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) to allocate portion of Fuga Island in northern Philippines for Philippine Navy’s use. 

This directive has been confirmed by the Philippine Navy chief Vice Admiral Giovanni Carlo to Inquirer.net.

Reports indicate that the order was given by the President last August 6,  to allocate 20 hectares on the strategically-located island “for a naval detachment.”

CEZA Deputy Administrator Agrimero Cruz made a statement last Aug. 4  “to correct the misconception attributed to CEZA’s memorandum of understanding with Fong Zhi Enterprises of China. CEZA’s MOUs (memorandum of understanding) with foreign investors are mere marketing tools, with short-lived effectivity of six months and are purely non-binding instruments as specifically provided in its terms.”

“We are fully aware of the fact that the Cagayan Special Economic Zone and Freeport is geographically configured in a very strategic location not only in terms of economic investment viability but more so in terms of national security and disaster response especially in the Northern Philippines,” Cruz said.

 

Enrile’s warning

 

Former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile warned against giving China hold of Fuga islands composed of Fuga, Barit and Mabbag.

“I have no beef against red China. I am simply doing my duty to my country. I am simply warning my countrymen to be very alert and careful in dealing with other nations and peoples whose national or personal interests my differ from the national interests of my own native land,” Enrile said.

“It is like a dagger pointed at the very heart of the country. If it falls into the hands of a foreign power with immense global ambition to achieve and great national interest to preserve, it will certainly cause the country a very serious and dangerous security problem,” he added.
